Hi Ray

That's actually GOOD news. It means that I could have a defective unit.

I appreciate your advice on this. Good to hear you're using the same Fuji 
films I have been referring to.

What's interesting is that I don't have this problem with scans of 6 year 
old Kodak Gold 200 negs, though Elitechrome 200 scans show some of the same 
problem, but E100S scans are not too bad.

I seem to have bad luck with scanners. Thank God I bought this locally so I 
am going to exchange it tomorrow first thing in the morning.
